AHA Blended Learning
What is Blended Learning?

Blended learning is a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner online, followed by a hands-on session.
The hands-on session is completed in person with an AHA Instructor or using a Voice Assisted Manikin (VAM), where available. The online portion is due prior to ALL scheduled skills demonstration sessions.
Please note that CPR ”R” US’s offices will be closed on weekends and holidays. Thus, you will need to submit your online portion to info@cprrus.com and request assistance to retrieve your certification during business hours.
All candidates who do not have an online portion submitted to info@cprrus.com prior to the scheduled skills demonstration session will be considered unprepared and have to make an additional payment for a new appointment.

  • Online courses must be purchased and completed through CPR “R” US before scheduling an appointment for the walk-in skills clinic.
  • BLS’s 2-hour online portion duration must be completed prior to the class.
  • PALS’s 4-hour online portion duration must be completed prior to the class.
  • ACLS’s 5-hour online portion duration must be completed prior to the class.

There are two options to obtain a certification, Instructor LED and blended learning.

Instructor LED

Instructor-led courses are led by the instructor and include video observation, hands-on skills demonstration, and a multiple choice question test. Upon completing the class and passing a 25-question test for BLS and a 60 question test for ACLS & PALS. The student can obtain an AHA Electronic certification card within the same day of completion of the course.
Initial courses are designed for first time candidates. If the candidate is a basic life support Provider with an expired certifications, they would need to attend an Initial course, which is approximately 4 1/2 hours, depending on the accuracy of the Hands-on skills demonstration.
Renewal courses are designed for providers with a current unexpired AHA basic life support electronic certification card and are up for renewal. This class is for renewal, is approximately 2 1/2 hours, and requires; Video observation, Hands on skills demonstration, and passing at least 84% of a multiple-choice test to obtain an electronic AHA BLS certification card. Another organization’s unexpired card is unacceptable. The current card must be through the American Heart Association in order to be honored as a current card and eligible for renewal. Candidates that cannot produce an unexpired HA certification Will need to take an initial course if the card has expired beyond 30 days.

Blended learning

Blended learning is a great option for candidates or providers. Have busy schedules. And needs flexibility. Blended learning allows you to complete an online portion at your own pace and requires scheduling an in-person hands-on skills demonstration with an instructor. The hands-on skills demonstration usually doesn't exceed one hour. It can be as quick as 30 minutes, depending on the provider's ability to perform adequate compression delivery, ventilation, and the use of an AED on an adult infant in a child, as well as the choking maneuvers for the adult infant when a candidate or provider opts into the blended learning process. It does have a two-part process to be completed in order to obtain. And an AHA S electronic certification one. The provider must complete the online portion in its entirety.
2. They must complete the passing hands-on demonstration with an instructor, no less than 84% for the hands-on demonstration, with the online portion combined with the hands-on skills demonstration grants, the passing, and eligibility of the official 2-year certification.
This process applies to ACLS, BLS, and PALS courses.
